As SOA takes hold in companies, IT is charged with creating and managing business services.

There is a major transition underway in terms of how organizations view their information technology platforms. Indeed, since more aspects of the business have been automated over the past decade, organizations have realized that these applications and technology enablers are a key business asset. One of the reasons that IT is emerging as a potent enabler of business flexibility is the advent of Service Oriented Architectures. With Service Oriented Architectures (SOAs) organizations are able to codify key business rules and processes as business services that support organizational objectives. In brief, a Service Oriented Architecture is software architecture for building applications that implement business processes or services as a set of loosely coupled blackbox components orchestrated to deliver a well-defined level of service.
